Terrence Malick's film, The Tree of Life, opens today. It won the Palme d'or at Cannes, a big prestigious deal. Like his others, it inspires something nearer reverence than mere respect: for its "audacity and vision" in "excavating primal, eternal meanings" and for its "sheer beauty."
These abstractions are like the solemn voice-overs in his films, which scatter words like evil, wicked, "the spark." There are always gorgeous shots of nature that you tend to be aware of as gorgeous. I don't mean there's anything phony in his obsessions; he's a Christian seeker who makes lush films he agonizes over. For critics they may come as relief after too many movies about hangovers and superheroes.
Do you have a completed first draft of your latest script? You may feel that it is your opus, and is perfect as-is...
My stubborn post-election depression took me to see Thor this weekend. Okay, I admit I love superheroes. But this isn't just a guilty pleasure. I'm on a quest to decipher the electorate's psyche through the heart of Thor.
All that mythic content in the hands of a Shakespeare master (director Kenneth Branagh) -- c'mon, the film's surely going to shed light on the unconscious masculine archetypes shaping popular politics. And sure enough, buried in this paramilitary fantasy, I fall knee-deep into politics and power.
